    2019 All new Mazda 3

    Official drawings of the 2019 Mazda3 – keep in mind that at this time, we don’t know if it will be sold as a 2019MY or 2020MY in the U.S.A. and Canada. The new “3” will employ Mazda’s latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture. The platform is said to be stronger while providing a much better ride quality. But the big news for the fourth-generation “3” is the debut of Mazda’s new SkyActiv-X gasoline enginefeaturing Spark Controlled Compression Ignition. This innovative four-cylinder unit combines characteristics of diesel and regular gasoline engines, using spark plug ignition to “control compression ignition”. In short, it ignites the fuel-air mixture similar to a diesel engine promising to combine the fuel efficiency of the former with all the benefits of a gasoline unit, without the emissions penalty. Mazda forecasts an output of around 190 horsepower with 170 lb-ft (230Nm) of peak torque from the 2.0-liter version. That puts it well above today’s 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G that delivers 155hp and 150 lb-ft (203Nm) and on par with the bigger 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G with 184hp and 185 lb-ft (250Nm). The difference here is that Mazda is targeting at least a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy and up to 25 percent less carbon dioxide emissions over the current Skyactive G engines.

    MAZDA 6

    How come this model like no value one? 5k dep nia... Sell that time should be 4k...... jialat. Is it a problematic car?
  4. I'm considering Mazda 5. Can current owners provide general feed back? How about fuel consumption? If anybody bought it recently, what additions did you managed to get? Today's price is 129,000, 3 yrs or 100,000 km (whichever first) warranty. Thank you.

    2015 Mazda 2

    Hi all! Seeing as it has been a few months since the brand new Mazda 2 has been launched in Singapore and many have been collecting their new cars recently, those who have been driving for awhile or brand new owners can check in here! Feel free to share experiences driving or any upgrades you might be interested in doing or have already done, i'm pretty sure we'll see many new Mazda 2s zoom-zooming around Singapore soon!

    2014 Mazda 3

    Hi all, Got this attachment from a Mazda dealer. Claimed it would be launched in 1st Quarter 2014 and est price is SGD120k thereabouts. The pics look impressive and if the engine matches the Mazda 6 skyactiv one albeit a 1.6litre version then should be a gem! What do you guys think? Mazda 3 Factsheet_Final_4 Dec 2013_2.30pm.pdf

  8. Hi, I will be trading in my used car to the AD's dealer. There will be a car inspection. May I know what should I look out for in order not to incur unnecessary cost to the confirmed trade in price? 1) Need to paint or touch up minor scratches on car? 2) Need to repair any worn out upholstery in car seat or scratches in car interior? 3) Need to bring normal service records (like invoices) as normally people do not keep it? 4) Do we need to go for pre-wash, vacuum or grooming session before heading to the inspection? Please give advices? Thanks.

    Mazda Biante MPV

    I have been seeing a new white Mazda Biante along Braddell road towards CTE/Bartley Rd direction in the morning. I believe this model is rare in Singapore. Can't find the price or car model in MCF! Guess the PI are no longer bringing this in? For those considering buying a MPV, maybe can consider this model. I find it better looking than Mazda 5 or 8. I wonder how this guy bought it.
  10. We know Mazda has said that it will not be producing any rotary-engined sports car but once again, Mazda is teasing us with these RX-8 mules. These prototypes were spotted at the Nurburgring undergoing tests, with one painted blue while the other is finished in black and wears the RS trim bodykit. Interestingly, the blue unit features a piece of black and white camouflage across its front fascia which is odd to say the least. Both also sounded different from each other as they went past the camera. Without any info on what is happening, we can only guess that Mazda might just be testing the rotary engines that are meant to work with the electric motors in a future vehicle...

    No MPS variant of the new Mazda3

    Hoping to see a hot version of the new sleek-looking Mazda3? Unfortunately, Mazda has declared that it has no plans for such a vehicle. According to Cars Guide, Mazda's head of Global Development and Product Planning Hiroyuki Matsumoto was asked about whether a high-performance Mazda3 could be a possibility. “We are capable of creating engine to answer such demands for more power, but at the moment we have no plan to do it,” he replied. It is no surprise that the company has no interest in performance version of the 3 despite the car's Program Manager Kota Beppu, recently saying that he would love to see the return of the Mazda3 MPS. While this is just a guess from us, it does seems like Mazda would rather concentrate its efforts on pushing itself more upmarket than spending money on making hot hatches. Meanwhile, closer to our shores, the new Mazda3 will be launching officially soon and will be powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine that is paired to a mild hybrid system.

    Mazda unveils the facelifted Mazda2 in Japan

    Mazda has revealed its facelifted Mazda2 in Japan. Set to go on sale there in September, the hatchback will lose its Demio moniker too. On the outside, Mazda claims that the new car has a revised exterior which strips away “superfluous elements” to reveal a “sculpted form that is simple yet rich.” In simpler terms, it meant that the front has a revised grille which is flanked by slimmer headlights plus a new bumper not unlike the Mazda6. At the back, there’s a modified rear bumper with less plastic body cladding and we can also see new tail lights and chrome accents. Inside, the 2 hatch gets new front seats and updated color schemes plus additional sound deadening material for the comfort of the passengers. The Mazda Connect infotainment system has also been updated with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Elsewhere, it gains a lane-keep assist, adaptive LED headlights and an adaptive cruise control system with a stop and go function. Handling wise, the new car features G-Vectoring Control Plus and a retuned suspension that promises to improve ride comfort while certain models can now be equipped with the i-Eloop regenerative braking system.
  13. A Japanese publication has suggested that Toyota/Lexus may share a rear-wheel drive platform and inline-six engine with Mazda. A couple of months ago, Mazda announced that they are developing a family of straight-six Skyactiv-X engines for use in its higher-end models and these engines can be matched to a rear- and all-wheel drive drivetrain. This prompted Best Car to investigate, revealing that Toyota’s first Mazda-based model could be a successor to the Mark X sedan that sells in Japan and other ASEAN markets. Lexus could then use the same plaform for a new coupe to sit between the RC and LC in its existing line-up. While this news might seem a little far-fetched, it is definitely a possibility with an increasing number of manufacturers coming together to share common architecture and parts.
  14. Hello everyone, I am starting a AMA thread just for discussion purposes.Possibly to help answer some comparison questions between cars I have driven before, from my individual perspective. (Not a show-off thread - as I am not financially strong enough to own a car). A bit of background, I been a seasoned driver, been driving regularly for the past decade. I have never owned a car before, but I am blessed to have the opportunities to drive my friends and relatives' cars on a regular basis, or sometimes. I also took some time off to test drive some sedans recently as I am contemplating on getting one. So far, I have driven the following models regularly before: Kia Cerato Forte SX 1.6L 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.6L Toyota Wish AE10 1.8L Toyota Camry Prestige XV40 2.0L BMW 216i Gran Tourer Diesel-powered BMW 316i F30 BMW 520i E60 XL BMW 523i F30 Audi Q5 8R 2.0T 2019 Mazda 6 2.0L Standard 2018 Mazda CX-5 2.0L Premium I have already managed to clock limited miles on the following cars: 2019 Kia Cerato Forte SX Honda Civic 10-Gen 1.6NA Hyundai Avante S 2019 Mazda 3 HB 1.5L Premium Volvo S90 Happy to answer any questions with respect to interior, exterior, performance and feel of these cars. Cheers.

    2015 Mazda CX3

    Just revealed in Los Angeles. Enjoy these pics. Likely combi of 1.5 and 2.0 Skyactiv engines + Skyactive Drive transmission. Should make it here by 2015.
  16. Hi all, Thesedays, my aircon sometimes blow out warm air when engine is idling, but it will be ok when the car is moving. I suspect that the condenser fan is not running well. My question is, how often does this fan cuts-in and run? When I first on my air-con (while car is stationary), I realise that this fan doesn't run. Then it suddenly comes alive (together with another fan (radiator fan?) next to it) maybe 5 minutes later. Then after running for like 3 minutes, it will stop again....and won't come back on again until like 10 minutes later. How to check if this fan is performing as it should?

    Which mid size MPV?

    As my family is getting bigger, I need a mid size MPV for weekends. My family size now consist my wife, 2 kids, my helper and occasionally with my mum. I'm considering the Honda Stream or the Mazda 5. I like Honda Stream is because its a Honda and it is has the RSZ version I like the Mazda 5 because of its a more practical car and its sliding door. So which will u choose? And any drivers own these cars can share their views? Fuel consumption, Drive, maintainence?

    New rims and tyres!

    I just change my rims to 225/17/50 profile for my 17" OZ Leggera HLT 8J, is this the correct size? I wanted 215 width but Auto Kinetic says 225 is "Fuller" look. Don't quite understand. Any expert advice please? Thanks!
  19. Last week, we published a post where we reported that two thirds of the Toyota 86s sold in US were automatics. However, Mazda begs to differ with some stats of their own and give the manual transmission supporters some hope. U.S. publication Autoblog spoke to Mazda PR program manager Tim Olson and was told that a staggering 76% of the MX-5 buyers in America selected the manual transmission option, leaving the rest with the six-speed automatic. Being the purer car, the sales data was based on the soft-top version of the car from July 2018. As for the MX-5 RF, 52% of the sales in the past 12 months were made up of stick shift cars while the remaining 48% sold have the automatic gearbox. While the above numbers do proof that driving enthusiasts are still voting with their money for manual gearboxes, it is weird to find Toyota reporting that only 33% of its 86 buyers opt for the self-shifting option.
  20. Uber's IPO flop bodes ill for Grab and Go-Jek Southeast Asian 'decacorns' must show path to profitability, say experts KENTARO IWAMOTO, Nikkei staff writer MAY 15, 2019 15:56 JST https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Startups/Uber-s-IPO-flop-bodes-ill-for-Grab-and-Go-Jek
  21. Good news for fans of Mazda. The Japanese company has announced that it is working a new family of straight-six Skyactiv-X engines for its premium models. Mazda made the announcement during an investor conference and said that the engines will come in both petrol and diesel variants. This comes as a surprise as this is Mazda's first foray into having a straight-six engine in its line up. The new engines will make use of the brand’s Spark Controlled Compression Ignition technology that will be seen in the new Mazda 3 and also be compatible with mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies. The company didn’t provide a timeline for the powertrains just yet, nor did it discuss what kind of models will use it. Moving forward, it is safe to assume that this move will see Mazda try to move up into the premium market with larger models running both rear and all-wheel drive drivetrains.

    Mazda car servicing

    Hi all, Since MMS is gone soon and my warranty is over too, I am looking for a good and reliable Mazda workshop for serving my Mazda5. Anyone has any good recommendation? TIA.
  24. Although the car now look much sharper and modern than before, the changes are too subtle to qualify it as a all new generation model. At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Mazda revealed the all-new CX-5 SUV complete with an updated design and a selection of new technologies. The most obvious differences between the new model and the outgoing one is the heavily updated exterior styling. Unsurprisingly, it takes much of its inspiration from the smaller CX-3 and larger CX-9 with Mazda saying that it wanted to create a vehicle that suited the phrase ‘refined toughness’. As such, the front of the new CX-5’s body is now 10 mm wider than previously and helps to give the car an improved stance on the road. Additionally, the A-pillars have been pushed back by approximately 35 mm and a new grille has been adopted. Other key design updates include thinner headlights and taillights and an overall sportier appearance, aided particularly through the re-designed roofline and sharp C-pillars. The interior of the new CX-5 has also been suitably refreshed and revised and incorporates a three-spoke steering wheel, push-button start and a 4.6-inch color display within the instrument cluster. There’s also a 7-inch display now resting on top of the dashboard, similar to most current Mercedes-Benz models. There’s also a 10-spoke Bose premium sound system and the Mazda Connect connectivity system which works in conjunction with smartphones. While engines will differ between markets, Mazda says the new CX-5 will receive its clean, 2.2-liter SkyActiv-D diesel engine and the SkyActiv-G 2.0 and SkyActiv 2.5 direct-injection petrol engines. All of these engines can be mated to either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. As standard, they are front wheel drive but the brand’s all-wheel drive system is available. Another highlight of the new model is that the strengthened chassis has resulted in a 15.5 per cent increase in torsional rigidity over the outgoing model. This is largely due to the increased use of ultra-high-tensile steel on the A-pillars and B-pillars. The improved aerodynamics of the new model also lower road noise by around 1.3 dB over rough surfaces. On a technology and safety front, the 2017 CX-5 includes Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Traffic Sign Recognition which is able to read speed limit and other road signs and display them on the 4.6-inch display. What’s more, the new model includes a torque vectoring system where torque levels can be altered based on steering wheel inputs, aiming to both improve the ride and great handling abilities.

    Hot Mazda 3 might come true

    A new report has suggested a hot version of the new Mazda 3 might turn into reality. If true, the car could go on sale in 2021. While we did not get the past generations of Mazdaspeed 3 in Singapore, hot hatch enthusiasts here would surely appreciate Mazda creating such a car for the future. As reported by Autocar, the hot 3 might likely a similar version of the turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder that powers the CX-9 here. Making around 250bhp and 420Nm of torque, it remains unclear if the car would be offered with front or all-wheel drive or maybe even both. It is also not known if it would be paired with a six-speed manual or an automatic. According to Mazda3 program manager Kota Beppu, there’s been significant interest in a hot Mazda 3 from “most developed countries” and he himself would love to have one. He then added on that the car could have more power than some of its rivals but would need to be “responsible and friendly… more friendly than a Golf GTI.”
